California updated its plans Friday to allow outdoor events at stadiums, ball fields and theme parks to begin reopening on April 1.
Sports facilities and theme parks will reopen with reduced capacity, subject to county infection rates.

Reservations will be required and franchise sales will not be available, a CDPH statement She said. Maximum attendance is 20% in Tier Red and 33% in Orange, both of which can welcome visitors within the country.

“ With dramatically reduced case and hospitalization rates, the arrival of three highly effective vaccines and targeted efforts aimed at immunizing the most vulnerable communities, the state of California can gradually and safely begin to restart more activities, particularly those that occur outdoors and where consistent concealment is possible. “Even with these changes, California maintains some of the strongest public health protocols in the country,” said Mark Galley, secretary of the California Health and Human Services Agency.
